Meet Your Barista: Will @ HB-Schnitzelburg
Will is definitely not shy. With his tattoos and love of motorcycles, and his thrash-metal punk band cred, he could cut an intimidating figure… in reality he’s anything but. Outgoing and generous with his time, Will is a favorite of customers and his co-baristas!
Ella, his Manager at HB-Schnitzelburg, says he is, “Interesting from his tattoos to his name, WILLIAM LITTLE FORREST. Customers LOOOOOOVE him… He is so sweet.”
And as if that wasn’t evidence enough of his character, a co-worker added, “Will is awesome. Second that!”
Which location do you work at?
SCHNITZ ONLY THE BEST.
How long have you been working at HB?
On and off since 2010, so around eight years.
What are you listening to right now?
It’s a toss up between Last podcast on the left and DJ Screw, as far as the first thing I put on when I get up.
You’re in a new band – what’s the name, and what type of music do you all play?
The band’s name is “Wrath.” I do vocals, and we play the best thrash metal around.
Native or Transplant?
Born and raised in Louisville.
Do you play any instruments?
I tried to learn guitar for a while after my accident, but couldn’t pick it up. I was playing a right handed guitar and not a lefty, like I needed.
What’s the best thing about riding motorcycles?
Exposure to everything.
What’s the main life philosophy or rule you live by?
You only got as much as you’re willing to give.
Your most fearless moment?
Fear plays an interesting role in one’s life, especially regarding the choices a person makes. I guess the most fearless moment was when my buddy Josh woke me up, and I was on the ground with dislocated shoulders and a broken leg after my wreck. No idea what was potentially wrong with my body, but I kept my cool ’til the ambulance got there. Scary moment, but if I bugged out everyone else would have too.
If you won the lottery tomorrow, what’s the first thing you would buy?
If I won the lottery tomorrow, I would buy an 48 Panhead Model E [1948 Harley-Davidson] if I could find one.
Favorite HB drink & why?
The best Heine Brothers’ drink is an underground secret…. THE WIZARD. Iced White Mocha, medium has 1 pump of Toffee Nut [Simple Syrup], and the large has 2. The undisputed flavor of magic.
